Do you know what PC Cleaner is?
One of the newest PC optimization tools is PC Cleaner, which has been published by Systweak. It is not likely that it has entered your system without your permission; however, you might notice its presence if you have removed RegClean Pro and agreed with the installation of other programs. PC Cleaner itself is often treated as a potentially unwanted application because many people believe that it has entered their system illegally. However, you should know that it is a perfectly legal application and there is no need to erase it from the system if you like how it works. Of course, it is definitely better to erase it if you have downloaded it not from its official website, which is Systweak.com.
If you have this program on your computer, you must have noticed that it offers to perform a scan in order to increase the startup speed of your PC and improve the overall system performance. These features look extremely useful and many people let PC Cleaner stay on the system because of them. Have you already performed a system scan? You have probably noticed that it can find problems related to browser and internet items, junk and temporary files, Windows and system as well as applications and programs. Even though it provides you the results after the scan is completed, it is not known whether these results can be trusted. Thus, you should use this program very carefully.

It is known that Systweak uses harsh tactics to distribute their products. Actually, it is the main reason why many Systweak products are considered to be potentially unwanted applications. In case of PC Cleaner, people might install it by clicking just one button. It is especially true if they do not pay much attention to the installation/removal processes of different programs. As you can see, it is important to read what it is written in the setup wizard. Luckily, Systweak products will not do anything harmful to your system and you can erase them whenever you want to via Control Panel.
